The number of grain entrapments in Canada is on the rise. The Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA) is doing something about it. Watch the video to learn more.
According to the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA),
“Grain entrapments occur when:
– An individual is present on the surface grain, which is being drawn out from beneath the individual;
– An individual attempts to walk across the surface of grain where a void exists beneath the surface; and
– An individual is in a grain storage facility where grain has solidified onto the walls of the bin and then the wall of grain collapses onto the individual.
CASA is developing a Grain Safety Program. The heart of this program includes building a mobile demonstration unit which can function as both a grain entrapment demonstration unit and a rescue training unit.”
